Back in 2015, a young Esteban Ordano, Ariel Meilich, Yemel Jardi, and Manuel Araoz got together to create something unprecedented. These 4 individuals decided to create something on this basis of Virtual Reality. They wanted to see if it would be possible to create a world where people can earn crypto in Virtual Reality.

Thus, Decentraland was born.

What is Decentraland?

Decentraland works as a virtual reality game. Here, you can buy parcels of virtual land and start creating a small city of your own. It can be anything from a house, a cafe, a bakery, even a disco, or an art gallery. The possibilities are endless.

With amazing graphics, Decentraland is a never before seen concept, with rules made by the users for the users. Decentraland is the perfect platform for those who find cryptocurrency tricky. You can create your avatar and your own little space. Also, anyone can trade or sell things on the platform or even in real life.

The platform uses MANA, a blockchain token based on Ethereum. Decentraland (MANA) is used for trading goods or services provided by the users, as well as other things. Imagine creating a virtual art gallery where you can sell the art pieces created by you and your friends. Here, other users buy these art pieces, and you receive MANA in exchange. Look at Sam Clare, for example. One of the first people who bought LAND even before the launch of Decentraland. He plans to build a virtual art gallery and sell the works of real-life artists. He wants to create a system where people can visit his virtual art exhibit and buy the art hanging on the walls.

Collaboration As The Cornerstone

The best part of this is that other users are also creating different LAND pieces. Decentraland is a whole collaborative world. This means that you can also explore the virtual city once other users have completed their portions. You can also ask for help to create your vision. This grants you access to tools and a community of supporters, so your time in Decentraland can be a joyous, connected experience.

There is a fully decentralized marketplace. In this marketplace, you can discover, buy, sell, and manage your parcels of LAND.

To get started in Decentraland, you need to go to their website and create your avatar. Once that is done, you need to buy your own piece of LAND. This is a parcel of virtual land – you can personalize and build anything that your heart desires. Every single LAND works under smart contracts, and its standard size is 10 x 10 meters. You can also buy two parcels if you want and create an even bigger space. Once you are the owner of LAND, you control what is published in that part of the digital world, and everything is registered on the blockchain. Whenever you are ready, you can explore, meet new people, buy things, sell things, trade things, etc.

You can also explore the center of the city, or the Genesis, as some people call it. You can also find eCommerce, universities, art galleries, business centers, among others. There is even a Festival Land and a virtual Las Vegas.

Once this whole virtual city is completely done, the developers plan to step out and let the users take full control of the platform. Now, since it is going to become a lawless city, there is probably going to be content that you do not necessarily want to see. Taking this into account, the possibility of putting filters on the content has been put on the platform. Users will be able to block content they do not want to see.

You can access the platform with your PC, laptop, smartphone, and even VR glasses.

The doors to Decentraland have opened.

And the doors to a larger collaborative virtual world have opened along with them.
